7. Balans Reopening
The highly anticipated reopening of Balans in Mary Brickell Village is coming in early 2020!
According to Food & Beverage Magazine: “Balans Brickell has always been a popular outdoor dining spot for locals and visitors but for the redesign of the new space, the owner’s goal was to bring more people inside by creating a warmer, refined atmosphere. Previously, the restaurant was more closed-off with dark interiors. The new space will be more airy and bright with more windows, a new skylight and an open kitchen concept.
‘The new Balans Brickell will be more inviting with a “London meets Miami” interior design concept that includes modern brass and wood elements combined with mid-century lighting and just the right amount of tropical finishes,’ said Chris Parra, project manager, Saladino Design Studios.”
